Fans will vote in a 32-player bracket comprised of four regionals: Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers/Running Backs, Linemen/Kickers and Linebackers/Defensive Backs. This bracket only consists of characters from movies not based on true stories (So no Friday Night Lights, Rudy, Remember the Titans ETC).The Final Four voting ended Tuesday,

Gump is an All-American at Alabama who ran kickoffs for touchdowns while going untouched - need we say more? Would also own the locker room ping pong tournaments.
